Christmas in July has been a lot of fun, did you have a good time? I had a ball making up new projects, and I hope you downloaded the pdf files for ideas and tutorials where they were available. If you are just now finding this series, go back and see all the posts on the previous 12 days for the Christmas in July event on From My Carolina Home. I hope you’ll visit my Etsy Store and Craftsy store for great bargains on fabrics and patterns, links on the names and on the sidebar too. Today is the last day for The Charleston Bag pattern sale (update – sale extended for linkys until Aug 1) I am already planning another event for my favorite season, Autumn! I still have more ideas that I couldn’t fit into 12 days, even with some of the really long posts! Ideas like this one, use the extra table runner you made as a bed scarf on your guest bed.
Make my Brie and Proscuitto in Puff Pastry for an elegant appetizer course, or to take to a party.
Search the used bookstores and the Friends of the Library sales for some Christmas Theme novels to read while curled up with your new Christmas Quilt in front of a fire. Last year I did a few reviews for some easy reading Cozy Christmas mystery reads.
Later this year, at the right time, I’ll talk about forcing blooms for Christmas giving.
The winners for all the giveaways were drawn yesterday afternoon using random.org’s random number generator and emails were sent to the winners. Forgive me for not posting pictures of all those draws, but they were sent to the sponsors. Once again I want to thank the six marvelous sponsors who gave prizes for your comments and visiting their websites. I hope you all visited them, and followed where you liked. It is traffic on their sites and sales of their products that encourages the sponsors to do these giveaways. Here’s one more chance to thank them for their participation by leaving a comment. All the sponsors have been reading all your comments, and will be reading today’s post too.
Please leave a comment on this post if you had fun!
